Acta Universitatis Carolinae Iuridica (AUC Iuridica) is a legal journal published since 1955, which presents longer essays as well as short articles on topics relevant for legal theory and international, European and Czech law. It also publishes works concerning current legislative problems.

Although intended primarily for domestic audience, AUC Iuridica is useful also for foreign experts, who can take advantage of summaries in foreign languages (English, German and French) and key words, which are systematically added to the main articles and essays.

The published articles are subject to peer reviews. If necessary, reviewed texts are sent back to the author for revision.

AUC Iuridica accepts contributions from any contributor on any current legal topic.

The journal is registered in the Czech National Bibliography (kept by the National Library of the Czech Republic) and in the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (kept by the American Association of Law Libraries).

The journal is archived in Portico.


We are pleased to inform you that the journal Acta Universitatis Carolinae Iuridica was the first journal of the Faculty of Law of Charles University to be included in the prestigious international database SCOPUS. This Elsevier database is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature in the world. The editors of the journal expect from the inclusion in the elite SCOPUS database not only an increase in the readership of the journal, but also an increase in interest in the publication of papers by both Czech and foreign authors.

[The Consequences of Criminal Proceedings for the Status of Civil Servants]

Martin Kopecký

published online: 04. 12. 2023


Laws regulating the legal status of individuals who professionally perform tasks of public administration (such as civil servants, police officials, appointed or elected representatives of administrative authorities, etc.) impose certain requirements on these individuals. One of these requirements is criminal integrity, which means that these individuals should not have a criminal conviction. The laws regulating the legal status of various categories of public employees differ in terms of whether they prohibit individuals convicted of intentional crimes from performing public tasks, or if they also include individuals convicted of criminal negligence. Furthermore, different laws handle the consequences of initiating criminal proceedings differently. This paper examines the laws that regulate the legal status of different categories of public employees and highlights the common elements and differences among these laws. The analysis concludes by outlining general rules that should be applied to all public employees.
